The authors claim that Bruno Latour’s re-definition of scientific practices as ontological construction processes enables an alternative understanding of the existence and reality of God. As a consequence a Latourian inspired God breaks down the a/theism-dichotomy by denying that belief is central to the God question. In this process Nietzsche is transformed into a new church father just as a polytheistic space opens up in so far as gods can be constructed differently. The second part of the paper demonstrates how a Latourian God can be said to be religious, and how our understanding of religious practices changes accordingly. This part draws on the thoughts of Dietrich Bonhoeffer whose views on God as suffering makes it possible to claim that a Latourian God comes to life in death. As a living-dead, a Latourian God is capable of re-orienting the religious towards this life and creating what the authors call a ‘brotherhood of actors’.
